Action Figure 8 was formed during the summer of 2001 when Barb Morrison and Doug Steinberg, formerly of Itchy Trigger Finger teamed up with bassist Rob Kim. The NYC based trio runs the gamut from power pop to classic 70s rock.
Barb and Doug played together in well known NYC band Itchy Trigger Finger for five years. After a number of personnel and sound changes, they decided to form a new band and start from the beginning. Enter Rob Kim.
Rob Kim has played with numerous NYC outfits such as Gravy, before teaming up with AF8. His melodic basslines hold the music together.
While in Itchy Trigger Finger, Barb & Doug performed live with Ben Folds Five, Hole, Sonic Youth, Sinead O'Conner, Elastica, Coolio, Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Cypress Hill, and have toured with the Lollapalooza festival.
Barb recently scored the soundtrack to The Safety of Objects starring Glenn Close and Joshua Jackson, which also features several Itchy Trigger Finger songs. Doug has been spotted producing and recording New York City's finest bands, such as
The Wobblies, Bullet and members of The Lunachicks. Together they have been producing songs for artists such as Rufus Wainwright and more.
